that has something to doith iran and something else to do with the u.n. nuclear watchdog group called the iaea. just for some context here earlier this week we told you members of the iaea, which is the nuclear watchdog group for the u.n., getting their e-mails and information hacked. all signs pointed that iran was behind that. we also reported to you yesterday that the associated press has a diagram from supposedly inside iran that showed iran wanting to develop a nuclear weapon that would be three times as powerful as hiroshima. today what we're getting crossing on the wires right now the united states effectively set a march deadline for iran to start cooperating with the iaea and let the inspectors into the country for full access. the united states diplomat says if they do not do this, if iran does not start cooperating they are going to recommend that the u.n. security council take this up. now what that means and whether or not that is a credible threat to get iran to start working with this group is a big question. time will only tell. the timeline is of the utmost importance
republican senators now say they cannot support the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, for secretary of state. at least until they get more answers about her comments about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. president obama has not yet even nominated her. but the white house says she is enormously qualified. senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte say they're even more troubled now after meeting with ambassador rice. the attack on libya on september 11 killed the u.s. ambassador, cries stevens and three other americans. five days later, ambassador rice went on the sunday talk shows and said u.s. officials believed it was a spontaneous reaction to protest over an anti-islam video. not a preplanned terrorist attack. first the controversy was over whether the white house made the change in the talking points. but that's past because intelligence officials say they gave ambassador rice those talking points. today senator graham called the information disconnected from reality. >> not only is the information bad and i'm more convinced than ever that it was bad, it was unju
questions that remain unanswered. i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role. lou: israel, gaza, egypt, and ron, american foreign policy. will we ever get the facts on what happened in benghazi? we are joined next. ♪ lou: the white house today said president obama is not particularly concerned whether susan rice misled americans on the attack. press secretary fired back when asked whether the president recognizes the way information about benghazi has been handled and whether that raises serious questions. >> not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or i went out and talk about the fact we believe extremists might have been irresponsible and whether we named them as terrorists or not does not -- no, it does not have any bearing on what happened and who is reeponsible as that investigation was continuing in benghazi. lou: you have to give this white house credit, i must say. i won't go into but we have to give them credit for, but ambassador susan rice failing to ease criticism again following meeti

right now in a new round of senate meetings for u.n. susan rice. she is going back after yesterday, it didn't go so well, she is going back. she will answer questions about the white house response to the consulate attack in benge, libya on 9/11 of this year. many political observers think she is trying to win supporters for a possible nomination of secretary of state. she would have to be confirmed in the senate. senator bob corker earlier said miss rice's statements may prove she is too political. the meeting between susan collins, she expressed concerns too. she is not known as a republican fire brand but she expressed concerns. these meetings come a day after three top republicans said they were more concerned about libya now after meeting with rice than ever before. here is senator collins a short time ago. >> i asked ambassador rice why she did not qualify her comments more, in light of this contradictory reporting from the president of the country. her answer was that she relied on our intelligence analysis. i don't understand why she would not have at least qualified her re
. bill: any chance republicans fold on raising tax rates? we will find out when we ask senator john f u.n. e, and conservatives say the fight is far from over. >> republicans have stood for one thing specifically, it's held them together, they are the low tax party. the other guys want to tax to match their reckless spending. if they give it up now in return for nothing obama wins and he wins big. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. i just finished a bowl of your new light chicken pot pie soup and it's so rich and creamy... is it really 100 calories? let me put you on webcan... ...lean roasted chicken... and a creamy broth mmm i can still see you. martha: unions are stopping work at another busy california port. this scene was last week when the workers picketed at the oakland port. now it is clerical workers at the port of los angeles and nearby long beach who are on strike as well. other unions, including the d
for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> reporter: rice requested to meet with her chief republican critics in order to explain why five days after the september benghazi attack that killed four americans she went on sunday talk shows suggesting it was sparked by a spontaneous protest. >> the information given to the american people was wrong. in fact, ambassador rice said today absolutely it was wrong. >> reporter: accompanied b
rocked the west bank late into the night after the u.n. voted to declare palestinian territories a nonmember observer state. the only other entity to hold that position is the vatican, giving plichs reason to cheer but it also came as a huge disappointment to the united states, which had staunchly oppose this had measure, a sentiment echoed by israel. the vote was 138 in favor and nine opposed. u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice had very different reactions to the decision. >> translator: we came to a firm legitimacy of the state that must now achieve its independence and that is palestine. >> we have always been clear that only through direct negotiations between the parties can the palestinians and israelis achieve the peace that both deserve. >> palestinians view the u.n. vote as a big step toward eventual statehood. hours before the u.n. general assembly vote, u.n. put out a statement on its official twitter account. we all do that but theirs had a glaring typo. this says, quote, on day of solidarity with palestinians, ban ki moon stresses urgency of reaching a one-state
that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups th
will be coming and making a statement. i think is so important that the character of the un ambassador be clarified. it is our understanding from hearing two days of testimony that in fact what the un ambassador stated was the talking points that had been given approved declassified to the house intelligence committee. that is what i am told she restated. this member is absolutely convinced we are in it -- an accurate reflection of the intelligence community. that could be said at that time in a declassified manner. >> is the issue here that there were talking points that were classified -- >> there are many issues but i when the chairman and vice- chairman to speak as to the un ambassador. i will give a speech on the floor of the senate is still in session. >> we have gained important insights as to what has happened. i still believe there are questions that need to be answered. i think anybody with confusion in the basis of the two hearings, it is a premature conclusion. i am glad we have two morris sessions ahead of us. more people we need to talk to. it was helpful to have patraeus

wants upmake sure nobody is beating ?p on his u.n. ambassador? >> this is the problem. bain, we should probably go back to the dictionary. she's not a nominee. dictiona she's a nominee kind of in waiting. this is the problem the president can't defend her as a nominee for a job he hasn't hasn't nominated her for. this is kind of a loose shirttail out there. she's going around the hill, talking to senators. meetings aren't going well. in n part because senators, if nothing else, are reserving their leverage for if she actually does become the t onnee, they'll have a process, hearings. they don't want to prejudge that process. pr pro process hasn't begun. so the president has to say these limited things. when he says only a limited thing about her success at the u.n., he is not defending her on t theuestion that's before him. i the white house is in a tricky spot here. of course, then hanging overall of this is republicans anger hey are note still not getting the questions answered on enghazi and feel that the onesrs they're getting are as 's whatal as the original ones in the heard. you
susan rice to the foreign relations committee in the senate when she was first nominated to be the u.n. ambassador. so clearly i want her to be successful. i was proud of her. and yet i left that meeting with less of a feeling with about her judgment and about her suitability to be secretary of state. >> now, kelly, much has been made of this. and i think some of it rightly so, susan collins is not a conservative republican. is this -- is this just, again, posturi posturing? because susan collins, what you don't hear susan collins saying if nominated i will vote against her. you've heard few say that. what is this? is it real opposition there with susan rice, or is it kind of talking a warning sign to maybe get more on benghazi if nominated? >> reporter: i do think the leverage to get more on benghazi is a real thing here. i find from senators, they take so seriously the role of advise and consent for nominees that they try to be very careful about not throwing around the i won't vote for until there are hearings, until there's a nomination. they believe in the process. you pointed out

north korea it strikes me that kim jung un is allowing to some westernized foods and such in. do you foresee anything be an done about the boming and the supposed sunken ship? i don't see any sanctions from the administration on north korea. what specifically president obama dealing with this, i think there are things that should be done. i think he could possibly talk to him and maybe get back to the six party talks. i would like to know your views on that. thank you. guest: i think that's a good point. the new leader in north korea, kim jong un, is in power. but it is a famously closed society. there's certainly a fear of nuclear escalation and there have been shakeups within the north korean military. whether or not that's an internal power struggle, we do not know. one of the top generals was perhaps killed by mortar fire. perhaps that is something that obama will bring to the table on his trip to asia, but i think there is a consistent policy that we want to prevent nuclear escalation in the region and it is true for all sides. japan, south korea, china, and other areas. we just

that u.n. ambassador susan rice used when she went on those five sunday talk shows, here's the picture, the famous picture of it. to talk about benghazi, but you say a few days before his office said they were responsible for editing the talking points, in a closed-door hearing the head of intelligence, james clapper, told you and other senators he didn't know who was responsible. question: two questions: where does the investigation stand? and how do you get to the bottom of it? >> well, it is like any other -- assuming the proportions of any other major scandal in this town, there are many layers to the onion and there are all kinds of questions raised, the most recent, the one you mentioned. i saw the director of national intelligence say he didn't know where the talking points were edited and now he's saying he did it. we'll be interested how that transpired. but, the biggest aspect of the whole thing is, it has to be really looked into. is why there was such a failure on the part of the administration in light of events, the two attacks on our embassy, assassination attempt on the

to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. host: president obama at a press conference today. the ambassador he was talking about is susan rice. here is an image of her in "the washington times." our question for you this morning is about the white house national security team. here is what steve tweets -- morris in san diego and joins us now, a republican color. caller: i have no confidence whatsoever in this national security team. i have less confidence a denture the president. i think this whole thing leads right to the white house. write to the oval office. president obama has made some statements already there are so contradictory there is no way he can explain the contradiction of his comments. you talk about a transparent administration -- yes, there are transparent. you can see right through them. there are as corrupt as any i have seen. i think this will lead to impeachment. i think he will be convicted of it as well. host: here is

. when i look at what's going on this area, to u.n. security council is dysfunctional, not working, not capable of coming to a conclusion. the g20 has not fulfilled, at least not according to me, the expectations we had when this larger body was created. in other words, from a european point of view, you need to worry about the fact that europe will have obviously a smaller portion of the cake in the future. germany is going to a 1% of the worlds population. the e.u. altogether 5%, 40 or so. in other words, what probably needs minority protection. we have a ton about that much. that's a specific problem for europeans, not so much for americans. if that is correct analysis, did we need to worry about global governance. we are capable as long as we are in charge and as long as we still represent to some degree the majority and as long as are capable for helping to shape the international system. we are capable of shaping an international system, which will be sustained even when we are only a minority. in other words, we called the shot. can we reform the u.n., the g20 system and oth
, pursued a counterproductive path at the un. i will have more to say about that tomorrow night at the forum here in washington, but for today let me offer this one thought for u.s. strategy in the region going forward -- we cannot view any of these challenges in a vacuum. they are all connected. our strategy needs to account for the intersections and relationships. for example, you cannot understand what happens in gaza without tracking the path of the rockets from iran. or how the upheaval in syria and the rise of the muslim brotherhood in egypt have affected hamas. how the treaty between egypt and israel remains the bedrock for peace in the region despite all the change going on around it. how israel's concerns over iran's nuclear program shape its overall security posture. then there are the economics of border crossings and fishing rights and concerns about smuggling and arms proliferation. the list goes on. the united states really does need to bring an unprecedented level of strategic sophistication to these -- rather than just going and chasing after the crisis of the moment. america
'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we are after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi, and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, and we've got a full blown investigation. and all the information will be be scorched to congress. i don't think there's any debate in this country that when you're four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't be any debate from me on that. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she is an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person
. host: here is an interesting article. if all or on twitter says, what about the u.n. watchers that have been followed with threats of arrest? who are they and what are they here? -- why are they here? guest: they have come to elections in the last 20 years and moderate them. to be clear in terms of what they actually do the polls now, they are not trying to intervene in anything that is going on. they are observers. they are watching what is happening. they are taking notes. i actually got to see their observer form on saturday. at the end of the election, they come up with a report to talk about how the election went, how the system operated. it is something that happens all over the world. my view, it is really bad form for the attorney-general from texas, and also the secretary of state from iowa, who basically say we will arrest these observers as they come out and see our with elections. the truth of the matter is, we should be transparent about this process and willing to let people see how our elections run. host: from fox news, greta van susteren said, the election is none of th
commitment. all of the foreign aid is spent right here in america un-american jobs. that is when the requirements. we need to gather up our allies and protect the people who serve in our state department we can secure them, they shouldn't be there. >> moderator: i'm going to go forward, but what you think should be the basic guiding principles, speaking a bit more probably? berg: if you are referring to dollars spent, or in general, our foreign policy, america is the leader of the world. we need to look where there are opportunities to create democracies come and we need to be supportive of those. you know, one of the been challenges that we have is iran. iran is, you know, getting close to having nuclear capabilities. from a foreign policy standpoint, we have to support the democracy that we have with israel there and will be can to prevent them from having nuclear capabilities. the next step is to move nuclear bombs very easily around the world. as it relates to our foreign policy, we need to try and again, make sure that americans interests are kept first and we need to be clo

international allies, partners, the guys we do business with at the u.n. -- where is everyone else prepared to be before we go forward? host: on russia, this is the "wall street journal." the defeat was a relief in russia because mitt romney had called moscow the number one political foe of the u.s. it was added that mr. vladimir putin sent a telegram to mr. obama that the kremlin said was secret until the u.s. revealed the contents. dmitry medvedev posted a "congratulations" on twitter. so that was from russia. another foreign policy issue is china. here is the "new york times." warm words from china with a subtext of warning. robust relationships with china while maintaining traditional military ties with the u.s. we do not want to be forced to choose between beijing and washington but what is going on here? guest: it has to be looked at in the context of the campaign that just ended. china emerged as a symbol -- for romney, obama's regas overseas, his inability to stand up to this rising asian power. the united states and china are so intertwined economically that is a very hard to start

clear -- most recently at the general assembly meeting in september at the u.n., and now we have interesting results from two states here from washington state and from colorado. in addition to the many states -- i think there are 17 or 18 -- where marijuana can be used for medicinal purposes. in these two states, they can be used for recreational purposes. there we have the pressure from the region joined with some of the pressure and trends in shift in public opinion in the u.s., which i think will contribute an ad to greater pressure on the administration at the national level to rethink its policy on drugs, which is clearly having very negative effects or perceived to having negative effects in terms of crime, violence, and corruption in many countries in latin america. i think obama administration will probably say it has done some things to move forward on this issue, talking about shared responsibility, but i think despite some changes in the discourse, the essential elements of the policy have been pretty unchanged until now. again, this does open some -- possibilities. t
news. >> when you have four people dead, including the first u.n. ambas -- u.s. ambassador in more than 30 years, how do you call that hype? >> how many security contractors died in iraq? do you know? >> i don't. >> no. nobody does because nobody cared. we know that several hundred died but there was never an official count done of security contractors in iraq. so when i see this focus on what was essentially a small fire fight, i think number one -- i've covered a lot of fire fights, it is impossible to figure out what happens in them sometimes and second, i think that the emphasis on benghazi has been political partly because fox was operating as a wing of the republican party. >> all right, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bill: let's play it again. he says you're welcome. >> never ask a question you don't know the answer to. >> bill: you're welcome. get outta here! cut his mic. apparently he reported that the producer told him after the interview -- after they pulled the plug, the producer said you
the u.n. and relationships with other countries? >> well, i think it is a little bit of a bruiser for the united states at the united nations. certainly the u.s. is the primary backer of israel. this vote is really a message to the united states that it's support of israel isn't going to be tolerated at the united nations. it puts a lot of pressure on the united states to get these parties back to the table and hammer out a deal as the main mediator in the peace process. >> thank you. >> it is eight minutes past the hour. egypt's assembly passed a new rushed draft constitution. the 85-member mostly muslim brotherhood assembly passed 234 articles. the draft will be presented to morsi and approved by the egyptian people. the language is open to interpretation and may allow conservative islamists to impose a version of law. human rights groups say it's full of holes. the proposed constitution has an anger against the expanded presidential powers. >>> the supreme court will decide whether to tackle same-sex marriage. they will consider requests to review cases. a violation of the cons
grover norquist. this man is an un-elected person who is making you sign a pledge that has nothing to do with -- with the country. guest: thank you. respectfully disagree on all accounts. especially at the very beginning. you made the case that we are talking about 47%. the fact is, republicans are not. democrats are raising this issue over and over. they see political advantage in it, but one of our frustrations as republicans with that 47% is that many of them don't have the good-paying type of jobs they want that would allow them to be taxpayers. our frustration is that we have an economy that is flying so low and so slow it's very weak. we have so many people unemployed. so many people on food stamps. so many people who don't have a choice they have to rely on the government. we want that 47% to be reduced by stronger economic growth. we want those who begin in the lower classes of income to become middle tax taxpayers. and to rise to higher levels as well. that's our frustration. host: congressman braidy, we have been talking about this fiscal cliff that congress is grappling with a
to exist before gaining new rights at the u.n. >>> all right. harold, let's do "the l.a. times." >> i enjoyed watching him do it. >> i'm getting nervous. "los angeles times." a new study finds ice sheet melting in greenland and an antarctica, more than 300 billion tons of glacial ice are lost each year. the earth's sea level has risen eight inches since pre-industrialization times. >> that was a good read. you were overemphasizing a tad bit, but i like it. i'll give you some lessons. >> my posture, do i do this? >> you just want to be centered. you want to be strength, warmth, confidence is what you want to exude. you want to cluster some words so you don't bore people. >> i thought i was talking too fast. >> in my next life, i'm going to be a consultant and teach people how to truly learn how to communicate on television. >> that is great. >> you think that's what i should do? >> yes. >> should i make that career change right now? >> what would the hours be like? >> the hours would be a hell of a lot better. you wouldn't have to put on makeup and wake up early in the morning. with us
we do business with at the u.n. -- where is everyone else prepared to be before we go forward? host: on russia, this is the "wall street journal." the defeat was a relief in russia because mitt romney had called moscow the number one political foe of the u.s. it was added that mr. vladimir putin sent a telegram to mr. obama that the kremlin said was secret until the u.s. revealed the contents. dmitry medvedev posted a "congratulations" on twitter. so that was from russia. another foreign policy issue is china. here is the "new york times." warm words from china with a subtext of warning. robust relationships with china while maintaining traditional military ties with the u.s. we do not want to be forced to choose between beijing and washington but what is going on here? guest: it has to be looked at in the context of the campaign that just ended. china emerged as a symbol -- for romney, obama's weakness overseas, his inability to stand up to this rising asian power. the united states and china are so intertwined economically that is a very hard to start any kind of a fight between t
and a person i am proud to call my friend and more proud to call my u.n. ambassador and would be even more proud to call her my secretary of state. so let us be clear it is unfair and i think unpatriot tick to assume that the chief diplomat would woefully, purposefully mislead the american public. to be come police to us in this tragedy at all is offensive. i think we need to get back to the nation's business and finding the real cull patriots who took the lives of the four americans. we need to leave the full weight of the american government to find those cull patriots and leave ambassador rice alone to do her job. let's get back to the work of the american people. >> as you can see there is a great deal of passion on this issue and to close us out it's going to be a good friend and colleague of ours from california who herself has had years of distinguished leadership in the california assembly as the speaker. mad dam speaker. and really understands leadership abilities and what they are. it's very difficult to recruit qualified women and senator mccain should know that. it is very diff
. >> seventeen years ago, as we were in beijing on behalf of the un conference concerning the rights of women, we thought about many of the women around the world who could not be with us but whose presence was a strong message of the values that we were promoting, values that were not just american values, but universal values. madeleine albright left that conference in beijing taking with her a poster signed by all the americans and a few others who we gave the opportunity to sign to take that poster to burma to give to aung san suu kyi, to let her know once again that there were many of us around the world supporting her in her cause, remembering her personally. when i was a member of the senate and privileged to vote for the bill that we now see come to fruition in 2008, i never imagined that a year later i would be secretary of state. but i was so pleased to have the opportunity to work with my colleagues, my former colleagues, in thinking about a new approach that the united states might take to try to see if there were any way to help move a transition forward, not only in honor of and fur
the nuclear option when he argued for people to suggest that you can read the rules to change the rules is un-american. the only way to change the role is to a rule that says to change a role in the senate's prose requires 67 votes. you cannot do it with 60 or with 51. i agree with senator reid in thousand 5 that the promise of the senate majority leader harry reid's actions are against the will of the american people and the intent of our founders. on april 13, 2005, senator barack obama argued that removing the filibuster would cause more partisanship. he said -- the american people want less partisanship but everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority ends the filibuster that they choose to change the rules and and democratic debate. the fighting, bitterness, and gridlock will get worse. senator chuck schumer of new york argued on may 10, 2005 -- the basic made up of our senate is at stake. the checks and balances that americans prize are at stake. the idea of bipartisanship we have to come together. you cannot as a lamb everything through because to have a narrow majority is at st
